Tanja's path of Self discovery started with reading philosophy books since the age of 16. Soon after she had spontaneous meditative experiences that led to the need for further exploration for such experiences. She come across Yoga philosophy and Ayurveda and soon after started with Hatha yoga practicies.
Since 2001, she immerse herself in studies of different healing modalities such are Core Energetics, 5 Rhytams dance, Rebirthing, kriya yoga, Pilates, Vipassana meditation intensives and different massage techniques.
In 2005 she met two teachers that made significant influence on her approach to practice and further yoga studies. Swami Brahmajnanananda showed her a broad spectrum of yoga practicies and directed her studies mostly towards the lineage of Sri Ramakrishna and Sri Ramana Maharshi. David Williams, a pioneer of Ashtanga Vinyasa system introduced her a practice, which immediately became her main passion. She received 200 hours certification for teaching at Gaia Yoga School 2009.
